When you first turn on the pro 95 and the dual trunking screen is still on insert (gently) a pin or straightend paper clip in the small hole just above and to the right of the external power plug. That will reset the radio. Once it is reset (wait until it finishes resetting) you may need to initialize it. Turn it off then back on, while it is still displaying the dual trunking screen press "0" and then the "1". Do not turn the radio off until the Initializing is finished.
Now re program your radio if you with to use the "SCAN" button. Other wise you should be able to use the "search" button to select the service you wish to listen to.
Hope this helps.

I recently purchased a Uniden bc345crs scanner. I programed 5 codes, but it will only scan one of the codes continuously. What do I need to do to have it scan the other programs? Thanks

Make sure you do have frequencys stored. Turn it on, push button to clock, then press bitton to scanner, then press hold, then the channel # you want it in, press hold again, now press e, enter frequency, press e again, if you want more channels press up, press e. Do this until channels are full or what you want. Then press scan if radio is ok it should scan.

How do I program a uniden BC 145xl base scanner

  • Press the power button to turn the scanner on.
  • Press "MAN" (for manual)
  • Now pick a channel where you want to store a frequency at and enter it on the keypad.
  • Now press the "MAN" button again to go to that channel.
  • Now enter the frequency you want into that channel and don't forget to include the decimal point.
  • Now press the "E" button (for enter) and you have programmed one frequency.
  • Repeat these steps until your scanner is programmed.
  • Now you can press the up and down arrow buttons to scroll manually through the channels or just press "scan" to scan through them.
  • Make sure to keep your squelch just above the noise so you pick up stations well.

  • Hope this helps.

Lost manual and cannot program scanner bc145xl

Try these instructions from Wiki.answers

Turn on unit.
Press MANUAL button.
Press MANUAL button again to select the channel you want to program. Note the channel in the display. If there is a hyphenated symbol in the upper left corner the channel has been locked out. Press the LOCKOUT button once to remove the symbol or press the LOCKOUT button to lock a channel out. To find out if there is a frequency programed into that channel, press the PREVIEW button. Each digit of the frequency that is stored in memory will be displayed in the LED display. To program a new frequency into that channel, simply press the digits of the frequency you want, including the decimal point. Press the "E" keypad key to enter it into memory. If you get a "E" displayed in the LED display, the frequency was entered wrong, is not a valid frequency or is out of range for the scanner. Last but least, the scanner is not working properly. If the channel is active, (communications going over it) set SQUELCH to higher number, until you hear the communications or just noise. To set the SQUELCH, select a channel that has only noise and turn it down to the point the noise disappears. You make have to readjust it to your liking. Once you have the channels programed you can select the SCAN button to listen to all the channels or select the MANUAL button to listen to just one channel. If there are channels that you don't want to hear during the scan mode, go to MANUAL and select the channel you don't want to hear and press LOCKOUT button. Then press SCAN again it will only scan channels you want to hear.

Hope this helps.

Scanner not working.

I had a simular problem with my HpScanner. What I found myself, was the computer stopped recongnizing the program after a few uses. Check your computer programs and see if it's still in. Then if its not, reload it, or simply restart/reboot your computer and see if it recongnizes it then. I believe its a glitch in the programing from the scanner itself. Also just always check if your connections are easily tugged on, may have come loose. They may look connected, but the littelest separation would cause it not to function either. Let me know what happens.

Unlocking channels

first press the manual button so you can go through the channels one by one. Then look for a button that has L/O(lock out) push this once for every channel you have a frequency programmed for it, the channel will probably not unlock if there is no frequecy programmed to it.

per roupe50 above
